on msnbc mott rated by chris matthews. each person had a role, i was the one who had to play the role of chris matthews and others up there -- which no one can play chris matthews. >> particularly someone with your complexion. but keep going. >> we have a lot in common. but the interesting thing is you have people up there representing the different candidates, and you get to see the candidate behind the scenes prepping, and what they do is you run them through the paces. you have the timing just the way it would be on the stage with the moderator just where they would be sitting. you run them through a series of questions and answers and you see how they do and you critique afterwards. >> is the conclusion though it wasn't very effective because, of course, mr. romney didn't do so well in 2008, did he? >> i don't think it was his debate preparation that was the problem. i think it was a whole variety of issues, of course, but that's why he's ready this time and, of course, you see the gentleman who is going to be playing president obama who has been getting him ready is ohio senator

. this is one of the great frustrations that chris matthews had and ed and the entire panel at msnbc. they were so angry and i think for good reason because there were basic -- >> joe, this is an important question. it's not just the analysts, it's the average american had the answers for that. clearly, this was not like chris matthews knew and he didn't know. every person i talked to said, well, why didn't he say this? he could not ha he couldn't not have the answers. >> hold on. this isn't a debate or chris or ed. this is a debate to win the election. i'm sorry, it may have been disappointing, but there was something else going on. you have the jobs numbers coming out at 8:30 this morning in just a couple of hours. you have a lot of other things at play, and he's in a certain position in this race. there must have been, as flummoxing as it was to watch, a strategy. what was it? >> i haven't said this for a very long time. i'll say it again, though. debates are where you show your depth of understanding about politics. i've seen 1,000 debates. i've participated in, you know, scores of debates.

. stop and say that again because chris matthews said it last night, that maybe he's heard "hail to the chief" one too many times. say that again. >> no one has spoken to him that way -- no one has tried to interrupt him in four years. and i think it showed. >> you're surrounded as president by yes-men and totis. that's what happens. everyone agrees with you. >> that's a little harsh. >> but it's just -- >> i don't think that's the case. >> everyone wants to agree with the president. no one ever says to the president, you know, it's hard to say to the president you're wrong, sir, no one gets in your face, no one interrupts you, no one tries to tell the ref to control the room. everyone is always differential. that's the power of the presidency. he hasn't had an argument since he met john mccain in the third debate in 2008. a real argument of this kind. where you're fighting for time. you're fighting for control of n anything the president ever h to do. >> on a human level -- >> any president. >> that's a great point. any president, any governor, any senator, you're almost indigna

by the president's looking down. chris matthews brought that up several times. these are small pieces of the puzzle we cannot stress enough. we don't know if mitt romney will get a bump from this, but his appearance proved that he came to play ball, and he came to play hardball with the president. do we have any more insight into the strategy down to the whole looking at his papers the entire time or much of the time when romney was confronting him? >> tamron, we don't have any idea on the strategy. to a lot of people it looked like to borrow a football team doing a little defense, not too aggressive and above the fray, keep your lead. as we know in politics as well as in football, sometimes when you have a defense, you can give up an easy, quick score. that seemed it to happen last night. you regarded about the lack of fight for president obama. i don't think it was surprising that mitt romney had a good debate performance. a lot of us expected that. i think what surprised everyone was president obama didn't seem up and as energized as mitt romney was. >> i think you're absolutely right on that. t

at obama, addressing him like the prey. megyn: that was chris matthews critiquing the president after last night's debate. even president obama's staunchist supporters have expressed disappointment with his debate performance and it seems it was not loss on voters. 48% seemed to believe mitt romney was the stronger leader, compared to 37% believing that about the president. simon rosenberg is president and founder of indiana think tank and advocacy organization, former adviser to president clinton. ben ferguson, host of the ben ferguson show. across the board the folks believe mitt romney won this debate and it's starting to move some independent, undecide -d voters into mitt romney's column. the question is, ben, whether that will last and how mitt romney capitalizes on that. >> he capital hraoeu capital cap capitalizes on it with what he did last night. what is different than four years ago when barack obama took the stage in mississippi he came out with grand ideas about all of us coming together and how we are going to cut the deficit in half and the world will like us again, and how w

. >> chris, joe raises an interesting point, the same point that matthew dowd raised in a national journal piece. in preparing for the debates, romney and president obama needs to remember that judgments on winning or losing are much more stylistic than substantive. the public isn't interested in getting more detail-specific policy, but in getting pointers about people on stage. when debates have moved in the numbers in the past, it's been result the impressions, mannerisms, style. is it going to be all about style trumping substance? >> he's partly right. he debates especially when you see a significant change, are about moments. which candidate capitalizes on the moment. either that they engineer, or that they respond to because of the question. smart candidates go in the debate to define those moments. the problem i would say for governor romney is, it is more than just style. it is substance. if he gets asked on the stage. what specifically type of loopholes are you going to get rid of and he says, wait, i'm not going to tell you, i'm going to tell you after the election, it's one of t
